This pattern uses basic techniques, including; how to chain and single crochet.

I made the bag using Lion Brand Fast Track yarn in the color‘ Chopper grey’ (149) and some leftovers I had from a coral t-shirt yarn from Hooked Zpagetti.

Both yarns are so great to crochet with, even though the t-shirt yarn has quite a bit of stretch compared to the grey fast track yarn.

I used my size 10mm (US N/15) crochet hook, which made the bag really fast to make.

  1. Is there a video tutorial for this flap over bad? I’m not to sure where and how you put the silver rings on and the making and connecting for the strap doesn’t make to much sense to me.

    Thank you

    1. Hello Crissy,
      Sorry, I don’t have a video tutorial for this bag.
      The silver rings – one is placed into a stitch underneath the main bag flap – you can see in the photo that it has been fed through one of the stitches on the underside – then you can add a tassel.
      The other rings/keyring clips are used for the bag straps, you can also see those in the photographs, they are placed at each end of the main long bag strap and then clipped to either side of the bag.
      If you are making the wrist strap – you will need one ring and keyring clip on the strap as you can see in the photos.
      I hope that helps!
